If my wife and kids are the judge I am definitely not cool


They are probably correct

Ice cream flavor? Maybe Thorny Blackberry.

Yes indeedy! As we have discussed before, j, always a source of puzzlement for me to find that various interests and behaviors of mine do not represent "cool" for the kids and wife, but rather, eccentric--embarrassing even!--aspects better left ignored on their part.

I did read in Dear Abbey today that after dad's give up these behaviors or grow too old to partake that the wife and kids forgive and recall the strangeness with affection.

So, rest easy--one day they may smile fondly rather than running from the room screaming...

hahahahha

Problem is I will probably never give up on Blasting the Grateful Dead nor grow too old for it - in fact I may need to invest in a louder sound system as I get older

My hearing loss = their embarrassment & suffering

And then, Tell said:

"I did read in Dear Abbey today..."


And Tell's kids said:

"OMG, ROTFLMAOAD"

I am always happy to provide entertainment--first my wife, then my kids, now the Forum. If any more were let in on the absurdity of my so-called life, it might disrupt the space-time continuum...warp it even.

Don't worry I have the exact same problem. I have gotten way less cool in my son's eyes since I revived this grateful dead thing. He informed me the other day that people who listen to the grateful dead are not normal. He admits some of the music is good, but the phenomenon overall is simply not normal.

Sounds like your son is pretty perceptive

If it were normal would we be here?

Daughter: "Mom, What's a Deadhead?"

Wife: "Someone who likes the Grateful Dead more than is good for them."

Another good Wife quote: "All their songs sound the same, except some are worse than others"

My family is always informing me that they've "heard that song a thousand times" when I think I've only played it 2 or 3 times. "Sure it's a good song but arrrrrgggghhh!"

"the absurdity of my so-called life"

I just knew there was a common thread that linked us, above and beyond that hippy pop group people keep banging on about.
